Honda Beat was a rear mid-engined two-seat roadster car produced from 1991 to 1996. And how small cars will be the future Honda has plans to build a successor for it. In the latest number of the Japanese magazine Best Car there is an article about the future car, but how Japanese is not our language we will only speculate.

If the Beat does come back, it will likely share the platform of Honda’s other current kei cars, the Life and the Zest. This means it would be a front-engined car with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

Expect the new model to debut sometime in 2011.

They should have launched something like this when small cars were popular. During the crisis in economy and fuel prices when smart cars were getting the groove. This would have sold a lot.

With the Genesis coupe on the market and new Celicas, 240s and RX-7s from Toyota, Nissan and Mazda to come in a few years, the smartest thing for Honda to bring back/succeed would be the Prelude.
